  • In November 1989, Rolling Stone magazine listed 10,000 Maniacs' "In My Tribe" as #65 on the top albums of the 1980's. Our heroes from Jamestown, NY mentioned in the same breath as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie and more. Astounding! 10,000 Maniacs will be playing all the songs off the album at our concert on Sunday, July 16th.
